As usual, Conyers takes action while his peers in Congress do nothing

Raw Story reports that the Congressman John Conyers (D-Michigan) has drafted a letter to the White House asking that Karl Rove explain his role in the outing of a CIA agent or resign his office.
Regardless of whether these actions violate the law . . . they seem to reveal a course of conduct designed to threaten and intimidate those who provide information critical of your administration, such as Ambassador Wilson. We hope you agree with us that such behavior should never be tolerated by any administration.
It will be interesting to see how many of his colleagues sign on to his letter. "This being a recess week, it will be somewhat difficult to obtain co-signatories," the Congressman writes on his blog.

Conyers appears to be the only member of House or Senate to understand that his is an opposition party, and he has consistently been the most vocal opposition voice. On June 30, he and 52 other members of Congress filed Freedom of Information Act requests for documents relevant to the DSM.
